  • Hello once again.

    Part two is bringing you a little side project I have been helping with.

    Sons of the Bear God is a fan-made, homebrew Army Book. It is an attempt to encapsulate the old Kislev army.

    dropbox.com/s/an0gay4pesdor16/Kislev%201-2-0.odt?dl=0

    This book is in no way an official 9th Age Publication and has been put together by:

    @Caledoriv
    @Erik Zorninsson
    @kgkid
    @Henrypmiller
    @Wohoel

    Please feel free to give feedback on this thread or Kislev? [Read More]
  • Hello!

    Its the 30th of the month (give or take) and that means only 1 thing! Tale of many Gamers is back. This is what the Ammertime guys have been up to the month of December!

    Rasmus

    Dread elf Fleet theme, corsairs assault from the sea!



    -ed- Rasmus has themed his Dread Elves to be assaulting from the sea as merciless raiding pirates. This unit filler shown above sits in the back of his corsairs and give his unit a lot of character. It is made from a GW Dark Eldar ship and the corsairs are jumping out of the ship onto the shore. The sea and waves are built up with white miliput.

    This month has been very busy for me. I have started a new job been back to the UK and had Christmas and New year. Nevertheless I have been a bit busy in the hobby.

    I have continued to work with my Warriors of the Dark Gods, Mono Wrath army. I was struggling for models in the last game so I made another "generic unit filler" for either Warrirors, warhounds, knights, crushers etc. It made from the "Dolmen" from kinggames.dk (fantastic company by the way) and a lot of skulls and green stuff. It comes ready with the old Khorne symbol which fits perfectly with my theme. The skulls also fit in with my skull bases.

    I have also done some work on the Vampire army. You can find it on my army blog: The Von Karlsteins





    Oliver

    Not so frosty frost-cow in the african bush! Lowering enemy's initiative solely by it's coolness factor!





    Ulrik

    Some stone trolls for my orc army!



    -ed- Ulrik has used the new GW Orc models for his stone trolls. They are large enough that they fit nicely onto 40mm bases.

    Lasse

    This month I have devoted my time to answer customer requests, which have resulted in two great products for my company: https://www.facebook.com/Magnetic-Movementtraycom.../....

    The first product is a movement tray for 5x2 (25x25mm) or 5x1 (25x50mm). The Chaos warriors you see in the picture is painted by Thomas Kyrsting.



    The second product is a set of two movement trays used for 5 skirmishers (20x20mm). It is a two part tray, so it is easy to change formation during a battle.



    This month I will try to finish my company website (future name: www.movementtray.com)

    Casimir

    The holidays always mean plently of travel for me. As such I haven't been able to do any hobby at all. So I thought I would show you a picture of my colossus with scales. The base of the model is a kratos action figure with som warsphinx parts added on top. The model is quite tall but does look suitably imposing. The picture is from when it was nearly finished so there are some small details missing.

  • Welcome back to Ammertime!

    This podcast is a bit of an amalgamation of last months events.

    We talk a bit about what we are doing in the hobby.

    Henry discusses his trip to England and the games at Pigmar Wargaming Club in Bath.

    www.pigmar.co.uk/

    Kristoffer has a wee rant about 1.2

    Henry interviews a coupe of Danish ETC guys to hear about their build up to the ETC next year.

  • Hello All,

    This is a slow time of year in Denmark. The days are short, the nights are long and there is little motivation for gaming (1.2 has had mixed reviews in our gaming group....podcast coming soon).

    Nevertheless I bring to you the second iteration of our "Tale of Many Gamers."

    Kristoffer's Assassins Creed Project

    I've been working on 2 things: infantry and unit fillers. I'm making a unit of 50 pikemen out of the old riccos republican guard models from the dogs of war range.


    Another dogs of war unit is braganzas besiegers.. The pavise crossbowmen in case you were wondering! Keeping the assassins creed theme, a unit champion is about to fall prey to an assassin hidden in a heystack!



    In the same way, an assassin will be making his way through a unit with his three lovely companions distracting anyone looking. Haven't quite figured out which unit though.. Ideally it would be a unit standing at the ready..



    Also I've scrounged up a unit of early empire crossbow men. This unit will not have any fillers as there is always that fine line of not using too many fillers in an army.


    Henry's Wrath Warriors

    Now world champion of Denmark, I have taken to my hobby side of things. This means, not playing a whole lot and enjoying some of the project that have fallen to the wayside. My Mono Khorne/Wrath army has had a few new editions in the last few weeks but this one is the only one which was finished this month.




    The Wrath Priest (the reds look very orange on the photo. Not too sure why).

    Casimir's Undying Dynasties

    So this month I have a semi WIP picture of my first unit of Tomb reapers. It's a simple conversion blatantly stolen from @jouso , but I think it does feel egyptian enough. It's made out of the flying guys in the AoS starter set, very cheap on ebay, and some tomb guard parts. So far I've only done the highlights for one of the three.



    I also put the finishing touches on a unit of carrion.


    Oliver's Ogre Khans

    First unit almost done for my west-african themed ogre army. Lots of bright colors inspired by the dahomey culture of Benin.


    Not all units are african, such as a giant taken as a slave. Needless to say the giant is not acustomed to the climate. My first attempt at finding a way to create a sunburned look.


    Ulrik's Dwarves

    I been working on 30 of these ever since spear dwarfs came into the game. These are currently WIP.


    Lasse "The Master" Blichfeldt Andersen

    This month I have been working on my private project: Corrupted Sylvan Elves. Just finished my archers and Sentinals.



    For my company (https://m.facebook.com/Magnetic-Movementtraycom-1554361148188992/), I have been working on movement trays that can help players to use 40k and AOS models for T9A.




    That's a wrap for this month. Give us some feedback on what you see here. You can write to us at ammertimedk@gmail.com or post here on the forum.
    The next podcast episode will be discussing the Danish ETC team (interview with Rasmus (player) and Dennis (coach)), tournament report from the Pigmar Wargaming club and also a bit of a rant about 1.2 from Kristoffer.

    All coming soon on the next episode of Ammertime Podcast (sorry about the delay).

  • Hello All,

    Something a little different from Ammertime Podcast this week! Welcome to "The tale of Many Gamers!" We on the Ammertime team are going to bring to you a fabulous tale of hobby frivolity as we begin new projects, finish old ones and create a regular stream of hobby porn for your faces.

    The idea behind this "Tale of Many Gamers" comes from that "Old days of White Dwarf regualr article" which is much commended by us not so old neckbearded 9th-agers.
    Basically what we will (try to) do is bring you a hobby update from the land of Amager ('Ammer) on the 1st of every month! This will usually be in the form of some pictures of our finished or WIP models that we are working on. We have a group of around 10-12 regular guys so unlike the much celebrated article of old, it will lack a little continuity, but I hope in time, I can convince all the guys to give me some material every month.

    Do not fear, our regular broadcasts will continue shortly.

    November 2016:

    Casimir:

    The thing that's always attracted me to the Undying Dynasties are the constructs. The idea of these cold emotionless statues coming to life and mechanically wreaking havoc on the battle field. Unfortunately in previous games' iterations of the Egyptian undead fielding a list with such a focus wasn't really possible. Now with the 9th age Shabti and Sphinxes are finally viable alternatives to Necropolis guard. So since previous times I have already amassed a substantial amount of skeletons, chariots and warmachines for my Undying Dynasties, now I plan to add more statues to the fray.



    For the first month I wanted to show the beginnings of the backbone of my army, the Shabtis. The theme I'm trying to go for with my constructs is a turquoise, black marble/stone look. I'm not sure how well its come through since there isn't a lot of room to do a lot of veining on these miniatures. The rest of my army follow a neon green and deep red colour scheme, this was shamelessly stolen from one of the sample armies in the 6th edition Tomb king book. I think the plating on the armour really benefits from the alternating colours, even though it's quite time consuming to paint.



    I also recently finished my first Sand Scorpion. This bugger was quite a beast to paint due to the whole thing being made of stone. I think the basic scorpion model can look quite wonky if just placed on a base so I converted it to seem like its climbing down a pillar. The pillar is a simple wedding cake plastic accessory and relatively easy to work with. I also never really liked the golden scorpion head, so I opted to simply make the whole thing in stone instead. Looking back on it perhaps it lacks a bit of contrast but I tried to make up for it by painting glowing eyes. I'm considering going back and adding those to all my constructs, but I haven't decided yet.

    Kristoffer:







    Ive been working on mainly bases these past weeks. I think the base of the miniature amounts to 33% of the overall impression of how good a miniature looks. Which (to me) means that a miniature cannot get a higher rate than 66% on its paintjob. Always paint the edge of your base a dark tone. I usually go with black but a dark brown works well with models that are more earth-toned. The bases of the tower guards are actually green marble that are made for bathroom-tiles. They are 20x20mm so fit perfectly. I plan to add more details to them, probably flowers like on the angels below. Those flowers are from railway-model company Busch, and are H0 size poppies and H0 Roses. They are a pain to put together so be warned!





    Ulrik:

    I got the idea for these forge wardens from another guy. I made a mold of the flame cannon crewman and then used som resin to make the models. The irondrake guns was found in a bits webshop.





    Lasse:

    Hi all,

    I'm currently working on a project I can use as a show piece for my company products. My friends told me, that I should make a blog about it, so here it is!

    The idea is to make a corrupted and dark Sylvan Elves army that isn't green nor brown, here you can see the results so far, please don't hesitate to let me know, if you have any comments or ideas!

    A lot of people ask me where the movement trays and bases are from, and they are from my company Magnetic. You can see more here: facebook.com/Magnetic-Movement…1554361148188992/?fref=ts

    Henry:

    This is a little different from my usual Vampire project or Elf collection. This is a WIP of my first commission piece that I am building for Rasmus. Rasmus is working on a Warriors of the Dark Gods army that will be themed as a Pestilence force. He asked me to make him a model which can be used for all the monsters, including an Elder Dragon Centaur. The first problem here was the base size. Although it is not shown here, I have magnetised a cavalry base which attaches to the front of "Baxter" (named after the villain in the Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles who is… [Read More]


  • Welcome to Episode 17.

    This is a quicky about the new KoE release. There has been a lot of negativity about the book so we thought we should share our slightly more positive angle with the community to get a balanced view out there.

    Hopefully this will give you a little more faith in the lady to keep you going while you test the new book.
